World Autism Awareness Day has been seen today
Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Each day is monitored on a daily basis to increase public awareness of autism. This year the theme for Assistive Technologies Day is Active Participation.
Autism is a brain problem that affects a person's ability to communicate with others. It usually starts in childhood and lasts through adulthood. Autism Day emphasizes the need to help and improve the quality of life for people with autism so that they can lead a meaningful life as an essential part of society.
The urgency of this year emphasizes the importance of affordable assistive technologies in supporting people with autism to live life with an independent life and, indeed, use their fundamental human rights.
